Story: Wellington region

St Paul's Cathedral (2nd of 6)

St Paul's Cathedral

The Wellington Cathedral of St Paul is the seat of the city’s Anglican bishop. Located opposite Parliament, the cathedral hosts ceremonies of national importance, such as state funerals and memorial services. Monumental in scale, it was designed by Cecil Wood in the 1930s and completed in 2000. Its fine acoustics make it a rewarding venue for orchestral and choral music.
